If you haven’t heard of Koven yet, where have you been for the last two years?! The debut single ‘Wake You Up’ from London-based producer Max Rowat and vocalist Kate Ashton was released last December to wide critical acclaim and just under 1.5 million YouTube hits to date.
Over the last year they have received support from UKF, Inspector Dubplate, Ministry Of Sound, Radio1, 1Xtra, XFM and others, whilst also having an impressive repertoire of remixes for heavy-hitters like Borgore and Prototypes.
On Wednesday night the pair were interviewed by 1Xtra DJ Futurebound who debuted their new single ‘More Than You’ and announced that he had signed them to his own Viper Recordings.
First and foremost ‘More Than You’ is big, so prepare. Using his accustomed multi-levelled, multi-voiced synths Max produces basslines with force and gusto and drum beats that clearly exhibit his knowledge and experience on the instrument, whilst meanwhile Kate’s voice echoes hauntingly over the top, setting the scene for the production to blow you away.
